As per InsideSport report, Ruturaj Gaekwad has become the second CSK player after Deepak Chahar to test positive for coronavirus in Dubai. The publication had earlier been relieved after an interview with CSK team player that there are more than 2 players who have tested COVID-19 positive. 

So far, the CSK team members and staff were reluctant to reveal the identity of the player. Yesterday, the BCCI, in a release issued said that a total of 1,988 RT-PCR Covid tests were done from August 20th-28th. 

"Total of 1,988 RT-PCR COVID tests were carried out between August 20th – 28th across all participant groups in the UAE. These groups include Players, Support Staff, Team Management, BCCI Staff, IPL Operational team, Hotel and ground transport Staff. 13 personnel have tested positive of which 2 are players. All the affected personnel as well as their close contacts are asymptomatic and have been isolated from other team members. They are being monitored by the IPL Medical Team," an IPL release read.

"The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has put in place stringent health and safety protocols for the Dream11 Indian Premier League 2020 Season, which is scheduled to start from September 19th in the UAE. Accordingly, upon landing in the UAE, all the participants have followed a mandatory testing and quarantine programme," the release added.

Meanwhile, IPL officials are worried to see one franchise becoming a "COVID-19 hotspot" which can slowly become an issue for other teams as well.
